Glamping in Slovenia is one of the best ways to experience the natural beauty of the country. Nestled in gorgeous settings, Slovenia glamping sites are optimal for travelers who want to stay in nature with the added benefit of modern conveniences – and Big Berry Primostek delivers big on all points!

The Big Berry glamping complex is situated in a rural region of southern Slovenia. The property itself is idyllic – plus it’s the perfect jumping off point to explore the Bela Krajina region. 


What is Glamping in Slovenia?

For those unfamiliar with the term ‘glamping’ it is a portmanteau of the words glamorous and camping. Glamping solves the conundrum for those who want to immerse themselves in the outdoors without foregoing comforts of home.

The idea of luxurious camping isn’t a new phenomenon, but began really gaining popularity in the early 2000’s. Since then, resorts have evolved from offering glamping tents to glamping huts to entire glamping villages.

Some accommodations focus on romantic glamping, while others are more suitable for families. The current hottest trend seems to be glamping with a private hot tub, which is exactly what you get glamping in Slovenia at Big Berry Primostek!

The Big Berry resort is nestled between the Kolpa River and the grassy pastures below the town of Primostek in Bela Krajina. Their glamping cabins are situated under leafy trees along the bank of the river, which marks the border between Slovenia and Croatia.

In addition to the glamping accommodations, which are slightly staggered in order to provide privacy, on the Big Berry property guests can also relax in tented loungers, stroll the herb gardens and easily access the river for a swim. Although, during our autumn visit, it was unfortunately a bit too chilly to take a dip!

For those interested in old-school camping in Slovenia, Big Berry also has tent sites with electrical outlets. We’re just not sure how, once there, anyone could pass up the opportunity of glamping with a hot tub!


Luxury Slovenia Glamping  Pods at Big Berry

While luxury camping with a hot tub is certainly one of the highlights of the glamping huts at Big Berry Slovenia, it isn’t the only remarkable feature. The functional space of the pre-fab luxury pods ensured we felt comfortable from the moment we stepped through the doors.

Decorated in pastels, the chic designed house had everything we needed and more: a cozy bedroom, spacious bathroom and open-plan kitchen/living room with a large flat-screen television. During the day, the rooms are naturally bright with light streaming through the sliding glass doors and windows, both of which open to the river and provide panoramic views.

The posh lodging is just one way Big Berry spoils their guests. On our arrival, a basket of locally produced products awaited us in our kitchen.

One of the highlights of staying in Glamping Pods at Big Berry is the local products – and we got a taste of them as soon as we arrived. Waiting in our room for us was a giant Welcome Basket filled with goodies produced by local retailers. 

Our basket included items we could use during our stay, like solid shampoo by the 4 Kids and Us natural skin care company. Additionally, there were edible goods that we used for our breakfast, like organic honey produced at eco-farm Kmetija Zupnca, delicious Zlati Ghee butter, bio-certified Voglar raspberry marmalade and locally-sourced apple juice from the nearby Kmetija Zupancic farm.

Big Berry Slovenia is more than fancy camping pods with hot tubs and welcome baskets…a lot more. While the unique sleeps take center stage, Big Berry has added a complimentary component to their resort: organized local partner experiences.

The carefully selected partnerships and collaborations with Slovenian brands exponentially increase the value of a stay at Big Berry Glamping Resort. As guests, we were invited to learn about (and taste) local products. Plus, we were able to meet the people behind the exceptional products, which enhanced our overall experience.

In addition to the fabulous and unique items, we visited (and feasted at) several partner establishments during our stay – as well as enjoyed some experiences on-site at Big Berry.

During our stay, we traveled around the Bela Krajina region seeing the sights and sampling the products. We tasted liqueur made with natural essential oils at Berryshka, indulged in the region’s famous Belokranjska Pogaca bread at Domacija Sraif, met the cows at Ekoloska Kmetija Totter, ate a traditional meal (capped by gibanica cake) at Gostisce Veselic and sampled cold-pressed oils at Olijarna Pecaric.

That said, not all Big Berry partners require a drive – some come to the Big Berry camp, allowing us to enjoy time at the tranquil, riverside property. During our stay, we were treated to a unique Zen Shiatsu Massage from an on-site Big Berry Glamping partner, as well as a multi-course meal prepared by a visiting chef.

Our Top Tips For Glamping in Slovenia at Big Berry

Big Berry really does all the planning for you! You just need to be ready for a fun, relaxing, feasting, good time!


Pack Proper Shoes

Glamping in Slovenia means you will be outdoors and in nature. Don’t forget to pack a pair of lightweight and comfortable travel shoes for your trip. I (Sarah) wore these shoes by Columbia. Kris preferred wearing these shoes by Merrell.


Travel Camera

If you are anything like us, you’ll be snapping tons of photos during your Slovenia trip. Rather than relying on your phone to capture the sights, upgrade to an actual travel camera for higher quality photos. We travel with a Canon Rebel, which takes amazing photos and is a great Budget DSLR Camera.


Travel Insurance for your European Trip

Trip insurance may help if things go wrong, regardless of how well you plan. If you haven’t already obtained travel insurance for your vacation to Slovenia, consider traveling protected with World Nomads.

  1. Looks like the ideal place to stay and explore a lesser known area. I love the idea of visiting in autumn and the hot tubs – would be so relaxing. The food experience looks amazing too with so many new foods to try.
